For today's card, I used a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set the focal image form the Butterfly Wings stamp set. The Butterfly Wings stamp set, is a large 5.5 x 5.5 inch background stamp where the outline butterfly images can be colored with markers or colored pencils. The set also comes with a set of sentiments, perfect for greetings on your card. 

May Challenge Post 4

To make this card, I stamped the background image with my Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto a 6x6 inch piece of white card stock, using my Misti Stamping. Since this image is large, I wanted to ensure I got a crisp solid outline image of the butterflies. Therefore, I had to stamp the image a couple of times to get a clean image. Next I trimmed the background to a 1.75 x 5.5 inch strip. 

Next I colored each of the butterflies with my Distress Markers in Spice Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Rusty Hinge. I used a little bit of shading on each of the butterflies to create depth and dimension. Photo1

Next I took a light blue colored pencil from my stash and colored in the background. 

To assemble the card, I first grabbed a piece of black card stock from my stash and trimmed it to 1.25 x 5.5 inches. I then adhered the black card stock trip to my colored colored butterfly panel with some tape runner adhesive. I then adhered this piece to my card base with some liquid adhesive. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set onto the white card base with my Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Lastly I fussy cut a yellow colored butterfly from the remaining background piece and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive just below the sentiment. There you have it. A simple almost one layer card made from a background stamp. I hope you enjoyed todays's card share and got a bit of inspiration! 

Until next time, happy crafting!

For my card today, I started my creating my card panel. I ink blended my background with Distress Oxide Ink in Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass. I then used the Whittle Cloud Border Dies and die cut my clouds from white cardstock. I stamped my sentiment from the Blooming Spring Stamp Set onto my bottom cloud border. Next, I attached my clouds to my ink blended background to finish my card panel.

Next, I did all of my die cutting. I die cut the Whittle Gator from Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended it with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. I then used the Raining Frame to die cut my umbrella from a piece of Shimmering Cardstock. I am in love with this cardstock, it adds the perfect amount of sparkle without all of the mess of glitter.

To finish my card, I hooked my umbrella onto my gator's tail and attached them to my card panel with foam adhesive. The little gator attached to my sparkly umbrella just makes me smile!

Challenge Reminder - Puddle Jumping
by Jeanne Jachna

Brighter-Days-Two

Hi friends!  I hope you're taking advantage of the "shelter in place" and enjoying time with family.   Now more than ever we need to make each other smile!  I'm crafting as a sweet escape.. dreaming of a change of scenery and relieving some of the stress.
04-20 copy

I hope you find some time to play our monthly challenge.  This month's theme is Puddle Jumping.. we want you to dance in the rain and find the rainbow at the end of the storm.. maybe it's some spring flowers.. or a look ahead at better days.  You can also break out the watercolors and make some puddles of your own!

Brighter-Days-One

I made a fun scene!  I get a kick out of seeing the birds turn the smallest puddle into an excuse for a quick bath or playtime! 
Brighter-Days-Four
My card starts with a color block panel of ombre blue shades of card stock.  I cut strips 1 1/4" wide and adhered them on their reverse side.  Next I die cut the assembled panel with the Raining Frame die.   I die cut the Stitched Cloudline from white card stock and adhered it to the top of the card with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension.   I stamped a sentiment directly on the clouds.. its from the Birch Press Design Blooming Spring Stamp Set. 

Brighter-Days-Three
Little flowers fall from the rain clouds as the ducks make the most of it.   Some sparkling clear sequins add to the "rain" for a wet look.    I added some highlights to the duck wings with markers and some jewels to the flower centers. 
Brighter-Days
Wishing brighter days for us all.. in the mean time.. be safe and find your own way to relax!

For my card I die cut the Garden Poppy Stitched Frame 3 times from white card stock and layered them. I coloured the flowers with Copic marker and I did a water colour wash over the flower background piece.

I added raindrops to the blue panel using a homemade stencil and silver glitter embossing paste.

To continue with the silver theme I die cut the Whittle Cloud Border from silver glitter card stock.
